how do you memorize all those syllables?

so, all my bitching got me two jobs in two days. one for the good eats program starring alton brown. another for a cingular industrial. the characters of each are polar opposites, providing a shallange por mi. i wouldn't want my 'water molecule' character to get mixed up with 'JJ the sales rep'.... so how do i distinguish between the two?
here's an acting lesson: stick-on moustache.
also, how do i 'forget' i'm one guy and 'become' another?
acting lesson dos: dewar's on the rocks.
it's a fact. i auditioned for something i can't tell you about because i signed a confidentiality agreement. but i'll go ahead and tell you it has everything to do with this place. i signed my name as gomer pyle. bo-schneeky-schneeky.

awwwwwwww. When we dropped you off at the good eats job, and Alton opened the door for you, I thought you had no idea that he was the host. We liked the thought of you saying something embarassing before figuring out he was the "star." But you knew! Way to ruin our hypothetical scenario!

here's how it went down:
hi i'm alton brown.
hi i'm matt stanton.
i know i hired you.
then we sat in silence for about an hour. i think we're in love.

sure, but a funny one. everyone was acclimated to his backhanded comments and actually fairly skilled at returning salvos. you know, the ole punchline scramble. the backstage bitter banter. the drama of the llama in yo mama.
